Maid of the Mist

One Day Tour Of Niagara Falls

If you’re looking for a one day tour of Niagara Falls, then I’m here to help you.

If you only have one day in Niagara then of course, I recommend you visit the Falls, and then stay another day! (just kidding!) But seriously though, visiting Niagara Falls could be your once in a lifetime experience, as it is for many of our guests. But here are my best “must do and must see” places.

After a good breakfast, start out early and go purchase your Cave of the Winds tickets. You’ll be able to get those with approximately a half hour wait, depending on the time of year. You’ll be given a plastic bag to put your shoes in when they give you the sandals you are required to wear. There are no lockers, so you do have to carry your bag while you walk. They then give you a yellow plastic poncho to wear once you get out of the tunnel before starting on the walk.

You’re able to get as wet or stay as dry as you wish, depending on where you walk. At the end, they have recycle bins where you can place your poncho and sandals if you don't want to keep them.

However, I recommend you keep them because they’ll be useful on your Maid of the Mist boat tour.

Before you take the boat tour, go grab some lunch at one of the many bars or cafes around the Falls.

Here are some recommendations:

After lunch, take your boat trip on the Maid of the Mist. This lasts approximately two hours. You’ll get all the shots you’ll need to impress your friends and family back home.

There’s a great observation tower on the boat, but if you’re afraid of heights, I don’t recommend it!

If you decide to walk over the Rainbow Bridge, between the US and Canada, when crossing back to the US, you will need $1 each, in quarters to get back through the turnstiles to get into customs.
